Shadow Warriors: Returning February 7th (Bonus Photo’s of John Lewis’s Congressional District)

Shadow Warriors will return February 7, 2017 and honor its second recipient. On January 7th we honored Sevgi Fernandez the founder of  Together We Stand whose mission is to proactively dismantle racism, discrimination and police brutality through education, advocacy and legislation.

We’ll be back in February with a new honoree. We are continuing to seek suggestions of people doing the work that may not yet have received national recognition. Others may well be known for other accomplishments but not for what they do behind the scenes. Please make any suggestions in the comments section or E-mail to spiveywilliamf@gmail.com. To not miss a recipient. Please press the “Follow” button on the side bar or from a mobile device, scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Until February 7th arrives, were providing some bonus pictures from John Lewis’s Congressional District that Donald Trump describes as,“In horrible shape and falling apart.”

Donald and his father Fred were marking “C” for colored on rental applications and being sued by the Federal Government twice for racial discrimination.

John Lewis marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. He has fought against hatred, bigotry and racism his entire life. The one thing it’s impossible to say about him is that he’s all, “talk, talk, talk.”

Donald Trump has never participated in any form of public service. He discriminates in his businesses. He advocated for the death penalty in a full page ad for the Central Park Five who turned out to be innocent. He then protested the City’s settlement after they spent 12 years in jail, falsely imprisoned. He calls Mexicans rapists and drug dealers. Advocated the ban of all Muslims. Mocked the disabled, calls Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas” and in his own words admits to sexual assault. His closest advisor is a white supremacist and his Attorney General nominee a racist.

Donald Trump doesn’t have the right to speak John Lewis’s name let alone besmirch his actions and legacy.
